to a close. >> since the economic crisis of 2009 five years ago, germany has been the driving force of the european union's economic policy. from the size, terms, and timing of bailouts for members to the depth and pace of european economic integration. on the eastern front, germany's caution and confronting russia has controlled the pace of eu and american sanctions. and tempered nato's response in the front line countries of poland and the baltics. close ties with china give germany a foothold in asia and beijing a line of influence through berlin. in fact, the increase in trade between china and germany particularly in german exports to china, has exceeded all expectations. germany is china's number one trade partner in the eu. and the top investment destination for german companies is china. based on this emerging economic between china and germany, quote, a special relationship, unquote, is now emerging. item. china needs technology and germany needs markets. structural similarities and shared economic interests are key for this emerging special relationship. item, germany's ap

like that of britain or germany or places like that. >> but, professor, there seems to also be a debate even if they change the tax, even if they make it desirable for the american companies to bring their overseas money back to the u.s. it doesn't necessarily mean that they are going to invest it here to boost our economy and hire more people. do you agree with that? >> it may not happen immediately. look, when profits come home from abroad, companies will use them for all sorts of purposes but in the long run, allowing a more efficient reallocation of resources within the companies can only be good from the standpoint of productivity that leads to economic opportunity. >> what, professor, is at the heart of this technique? is it the repatriation in one of the pieces $69 billion of pfizer's cash that's domiciled overseas or is it just year to year being able to take advantage of a lower corporate tax rate or is it that we double tax corporate profits in the united states? what is it? >> there are three things that britain offers that the united states does not. the first is as your seg

on the planet. and a new exhibit of art, banned by nazi germany. >> to actually see the art that was deemed as un-german is fascinating. >> rose: we have those stories and more on what happened and what might happen. >> there's a saying around here: you stand behind what you say. around here, we don't make excuses, we make commitments. and when you can't live up to them, you own up and make it right. some people think the kind of accountability that thrives on so many streets in this country has gone missing in the places where it's needed most. but i know you'll still find it, when you know where to look. captioning sponsored by rose communications >> rose: and so you began how? >> it's a very subjective process. >> rose: is it luck at all or something else? >> we're going to do this. >> rose: what's the object lesson here? >> they need to be called out for it. >> rose: tell me the significance of the moment. >> rose: president obama left washington on a post poped trip to asia. and for the first time in decades, an american won the boston marathon. here are thesitis and sounds of the past

on that. i'm sure you feel the same way about germany and parts of europe as well. but maybe they could pay a little more. i don't think you undermine the arrangement we had. >> i was based in china as a journalist. china is an extremely disruptive rising power potentially. think of all the american companies who manufacture, who supply chains include a lot of manufacturing in china, but also here. these are all stitched into the global patchwork quilt of globalization. at which america is a master mind. very well globalization, whatever pat buchanan may think. the absence of war in america as the preeminent security, it's expensive in terms of what we spend on ships and planes. we don't want to see japan arming to the teeth under a conservative nationalist prime minister picking fights with the northeast. >> isn't it comforting to you that capitalism serves as a restraint? you understand his reasoning. can you appreciate that and can you echo that? >> look. i think the problem that we have here in the united states is we have a weak economy and weakened economy that we can look forward
